  • We keep adding more rules and more regulations yet the economy continues to struggle. The sad thing is that I imagine many people in this town really do see this as a conundrum.
  • Speaking of economic ignorance, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is actually bragging about the decision to purchase trains under Buy America provisions. Think about that, he is highlighting the fact that the government is overpaying for something it could buy cheaper elsewhere (if trains elsewhere were more expensive the Buy America provision would be unnecessary) and thus wasting taxpayer dollars.
  • Great column by Jeff Jacoby based on an excellent Rick Perry quote. Just hope Perry actually believe what he says.
